Virtual Tabletop Launched!

The time had to come, and it has! Our own virtual board is ready and, after going through a beta phase with some of our users, you have it available to enjoy it from now on!

We wanted to give priority to simplicity over complicated and effective mechanics, and the board does what it has to do: display a map, the characters and monsters, and roll the dice. Everything within reach of anyone and without prior registration.

It’s so simple that it requires no explanation, so we’ve created some videos to show you how some of the board’s mechanics work. For example, the map background or character and monster tokens, in different sizes:

Easy, right? We have also incorporated fog of war so that it can be applied as quickly as possible, in the form of rectangles, like this:

And all that’s left is the dice. We have opted for quality configurable 3d dice, to take into account the performance of all computers. Ease of use and handling, and colour settings so that the Dungeon Master can identify each roll at a glance.

In short, a useful and easy to use board so you don’t have to invest in learning how to use it for a while that you could use in playing with it directly.

Playing on your virtual tabletop tonight and noticed that the D12 does not differentiate the 6 or the 9. It requires an underline or a fullstop after both the 6 and 9.

D’oh! We will fix it with no release needed, as soon as we can.
Thank you for noticing!

There are some minor bugs like sometimes tokens will stick to the cursor and can’t be dropped, chat displaying wrong names who rolled the dice, or some images not loading for all players.
Besides that this is an super awesome thing you have created. I LOVE the dice feature and how they interact. I LOVE how simple it is to add new tokens or backgrounds. It is just fantastic and exactly what I needed as GM during COVID times.

Thank you!

Thank you for the tips! We will give those minor bugs to the programming area, they have tons of work but they’re doing their best during this days.

Thank you!

The fog of war is not covering the tokens. If the DM prepares monster tokens we can see them as soon as the page loads. Please hide the tokens if they are covered by fog of war

Ok, we add it to the list,
but the problem would be if there is videoconferente running at the same time.

How do we add token in the initiative tracker? And it would be great to get a starting blank room. By far the easiest VTT I’ve found, thanks for this.

Thanks!!!!

Drag and drop, from the upbar,
Of course first you need to add a token (then you can delete it if you like).
Usually it should be automatically added to initiative tracker unless it is full (6 positions), in that case you cand liberate a hole just dragging a token outside iniative tracker.

regards!
